Started runnning more regularly in 2005 after years of mostly strength training.  I have cut back on endurance training since developing heart and thyroid issues over the years.  Reintroduced strength training and walking sessions for a more balanced approach to health.

Easy run mixing in some faster paces during second half.  I was going to do 20 miles, but my right leg has been complaining all week.  This morning my right hamstring sent out a few bites so I slowed down and decided to shorten the run.  It was feeling much better once it warmed up, but I had to be careful not to overstride.

Nice running this week. When's the move? Where will you be living? What's your new position?

Thanks Dave. I've been stuggling to find consistency and the relocation plans has played havoc with scheduling. I start 10/1 in Springfield, IL working as a Sr. Investment Analyst.

Congratulations on the new job, yet relocation brings with it many challenges (having relatively recently relocated my family as well)- so I'll be keeping you in prayer.

Yes, thanks for the "support".
